My wife and I were very saddened to hear of Mr. Taylor’s passing. He was one of the most decent, kind, and intelligent men I had the pleasure of knowing. He and I shared many gardening techniques with each other…what worked and didn’t work. It was a pleasure to have known him. They simply don’t make men like him anymore.
